I am glad to hear you are trying to get Roxie to a healthy weight. Being overweight can shorten a dog's life by as much as 2 years on average.

It is not harmful to combine chopped carrots to her commercial dog food. You need to be careful with how much commercial food you give her if you want her to lose weight.

I hope you were able to see my responses; I have not heard back from you. How is she doing?
